  • Nanotechnology and its implications for environmental legislation

    The major problem for environmental legislation arising from nanotechnology is the size of nano-particles. Nano, meaning dwarf, is measured in nanometers or billionths of a meter. One way of contamination is penetration through human skin. Since nanoparticles are so small, they have a very large surface area as compared with the amount of their interior. Inside, the contents are stable, but those ...
